Third mission

In addition to its two key functions – scientific research and education – the University engages in Third Mission activities aimed at spreading culture, knowledge and transferring research results outside the academic community, thus contributing to social and cultural growth.

The University intends to be an economic and cultural engine for the local area, fostering progress and innovation, promoting dialogue and interaction with citizens, the economic system and public and private institutions.

In the "knowledge society", we will leverage our multidisciplinary skills to create synergies, and promote collaborations and exchanges both internally and externally.

Organization and governance

A University network oversees the processes of enhancement and monitoring of Third Mission activities.
